The solution is a patent pending curbless metal building attachment system incorporating Sunoptics high-performance prismatic skylights. The Sunoptics skylight used is the patented Signature Series. 

The curbless daylighting system is designed for direct attachment to new or existing structural standing seam roofing systems and is designed to maintain the structural integrity of the roofing system. The integrated rail attachment, which attaches to the roof’s structural standing seam, allows the system to move with roof expansion and contraction. A single-sided front-end water diverter minimizes roof penetrations and leak potential.

“The curbless daylighting system, featuring the Sunoptics Signature Series Skylight, provides a unique daylighting solution for buildings with standing seam metal roofs,” said Grant Grable, VP and value stream leader, Sunoptics. “In the market of new and existing metal buildings, there has long been a need for a daylighting product that can minimize leak potential and reduce the excessive labor needed to install conventional metal roof curbs. This system provides the solution that solves both needs.”
